Leaving a Legacy
Many of our supporters leave a gift in their will to Alpha. This has helped us fund exciting projects to grow Alpha globally and see more people given the opportunity to explore a relationship with Jesus.
We have just begun a new partnership with award-winning will provider Farewill to offer a free will-writing service to those who know and love Alpha.
If you would prefer to to write your will over the phone, you can make an appointment with a specialist at www.farewill.com/wills/telephone-wills/contact or by calling 020 8050 2686 and mentioning Alpha.
If you already have a will and would like to include Alpha, contact your will provider with our formal name, address and charity number. Alternatively, to speak to someone in our team about leaving a gift in your will to Alpha, please contact [email protected].
Tax Efficient Giving
If you are a UK tax payer (Income or Capital Gains Tax) and would like us to be able to claim back the basic rate tax through the government’s Gift Aid scheme, you will need to make a Gift Aid declaration to us. The easiest way to do this is through the Online Gift Aid Declaration form.
Alternatively, please fill in, sign and return to us an ongoing Gift Aid declaration.
This allows us to reclaim 25p for every £1 given, at no extra cost to you.
If you pay higher or additional rate tax, you may recover this through your own tax return. Alternatively, you may pass on this extra tax to Alpha by giving via your employer’s payroll giving scheme.
Giving via Payroll Giving means you give ‘pre-tax’. You can therefore pass on the full benefit of your tax to Alpha immediately.
For Higher Rate and Additional Rate taxpayers, this increases your charitable donation by the amount of the tax you would have paid on the donation if you’d kept it as income – 67% or 82% respectively, an increase of 33% and 45% over Gift Aid.
If you are a Basic Rate taxpayer, Payroll Giving would increase your donations by 25%, which is the same as a Gift Aid declaration.
